About this Book

The Juniper Networks routing platforms are becoming the go-to solution for core, edge, metro and remote office networks, and Junos OS is behind it all. The operating system is so full of industrial-strength routing protocols and IP innovations that those treading into the world of Junos will need clarification, explanation, and a showcase example or two. Look no further. This JUNOS Cookbook provides it all and more.

Yes, you can pore over the 5,000 pages of documentation or take a two-thousand-dollar training course, but Junos’s sophistication can be baffling unless you know the shortcuts and tricks, as well as those rays of illuminating comprehension that can come only from those who live with it. Junos Cookbook is the first comprehensive book about Junos OS. It provides over 200 time-saving step-by-step techniques, and includes discussions about the Junos processes and alternative ways to perform the same task. It’s been tested and tech-reviewed by field engineers who know how to take Junos out for a spin, and it’s applicable to the entire line of M, T, and J Series routers. It covers:

  • Basic router configuration and file management
  • Security and access control
  • Logging, routing policy, and firewalling
  • Routing protocols from RIP to BGP
  • MPLS and VPNs

Junos Cookbook will pay for itself the first few times you use it by making your network easier to manage and update. If you work with Juniper routers, you need this book on your desk.
